THE PLANK OCTOBER 1, 2009

Where Is Gates on Afghanistan

The WSJ says that Gates has fresh doubts about the prospects of a major counterinsurgency campaign. But his spokesman, Geoff Morell, says he's also dubious about Joe Biden-backed the counterterrorism approach. Gates "does not think that is a path to success in Afghanistan," Morell tells the Journal. It's not clear what to make of this, as I'd be surprised if Gates endorsed a halfway muddle-through strategy.
